Software Testing Blogs: Load Testing, Unit Testing, Functional Testing
Unit testing and Test-Driven-Development (TDD) are an important part of every Agile software testing strategy. One of the issue associated to these techniques is the coupling between the source code and its tests. In his blog post, Tingan Ho presents a testing strategy, called Baseline Testing, that should solve the coupling issues with TDD.
Even if they are at the basis of the software testing pyramid and they are at the heart of the Test-Driven Development (TDD) approach, unit tests are still a controversial topic in software development and some people event consider that most unit testing is waste. In his blog post, Bas Dijkstra explains why he thinks that unit testing should be the basis of any solid automation strategy.
One of the activity of software testing engineer at Google is to build and improve the test infrastructure to help software developers to be more productive. In this blog post, Jochen Wuttke gives a concrete example of this task.
Wikipedia defines code review as a systematic examination of computer source code to improve the overall quality of software. In his blog post, Joel Kemp provides some propositions on how to give better code reviews.
Rules have disappeared in the version 5 of the JUnit open source Java testing tools. The release 5 of JUnit is still in alpha status. In this article, Herrmann Rüdiger explores what it would take to transform existing rules to the new concept so that they could run natively on JUnit 5.
End-to-end testing (or system testing) tests a completely integrated system to verify that it meets its requirements. In a blog post, Mike Wacker from Google explains why if this testing strategy sounds good in theory, it goes wrong in practice.
